weed is bad. It's a weakness. I hate the people who can't have fun with their friends without weed. It's pathetic that they can't enjoy themselves at a ******* party with all their friends without needing to smoke. Or the people who smoke to hide from their problems. It's just a crutch. Man the **** up and deal with your problems. Life is hard, man up. It's also bad for the body and pot heads insist there's no bad side affects. It lowers your lung capacity. It also lowers your reaction time. Marijuana smoke burns a lot hotter than tobacco smoke so that also damages the lungs. It's known to lower sperm count as well. Weed also causes memory loss.

But one of the biggest problem with weed is the people you buy it from. You buy it from your local drug dealer, that's not that bad, but up the ladder is where the hardcore dealers are. The ones who ******* kill people or hurt them and cause fear. That's who your money is going to. Even if you just smoke casually.

It's physically impossible for a human to overdose using it, there are no recorded deaths due to it's use, it isn't even linked with lung cancer (unlike tobacco), it has been proven that is does not kill brain cells or lower IQ, it INCREASES lung capacity (this is all true, look it up if you don't believe me), and if someone would rather get high at a party and enjoy themself then who the **** do you think you are to stop them? I've only ever known weed to bring people together - friends getting high at a party is a really great experience.
Also, if it was legal, the problem about where you buy it from wouldn't exist anymore - you would know that your money is safely going to the government and back into the economy - so you've just given another reason for legalisation.
Whats wrong with an occasional joint?

It damages the moist sacs in the lungs that capture oxygen, it can also damage dopamine receptors with prolonged use, due to the influx of dopamine into the system. Marijuana actually burns about 3x hotter than cigarettes witch would burn the hairs in your lungs faster witch will create cancerous cells to spread faster. It also coats the neurons in your brain in THC and wont allow the neurons to connect, basically saying that its going to make you dumb. And the only reason why you feel high when you smoke it is because the THC is choking your brain of oxygen as the result of the floaty goofy feeling. Here's a very short article about the affects on older men. "men who reported smoking pot in the past were twice as likely to have certain types of testicular cancer than those who claimed they had never touched the stuff."

It "burns about 3x hotter than cigarettes witch would burn the hairs in your lungs faster witch will create cancerous cells to spread faster".
This makes absolutely no sense - i'm not sure if you're referring to the alveoli in your lungs when you say "hair in your lungs", and when you say that the hot smoke burns these "hairs" (which obviously does not happen), how would this "create cancerous cells to spread faster"?
The fact that you have used a few scientific terms like "neurons" does not make your ******** argument any more valid.

Everything I stated in my previous comment has been proven via scientific studies. If you would like some links to these studies I can provide them.



Also, the testicular cancer study has no scientific evidence what so ever, no changing variable - they just asked a few men about their past drug habits then published the results as fact.

<------Perhaps this will come in handy too.

Weed is not a drug, it is a plant. It just grows like that. Now if you happen to light it on fire and smoke it then there will be some side effects.

Drugs you gotta do stuff chemically to it. Add baking soda, water stir it up I don't know the recipe all I know is that if you smoke weed, everything will mellow people out.
#40 to #34 - anon (07/18/2013) [-]
opium is also a plant, not arguing just belittling that plant statement. which is true, but just you know.....belittling
#38 to #34 - anon (07/18/2013) [-]
Cocaine is not a drug, Nicotine is not a drug, opium is not a drug, heroine is not a drug, all of these come from plants.
#37 to #34 - anon (07/18/2013) [-]
So if i chew on a coca leaf its not a drug, but if i was to ingest the same amount of cocaine that was chemically pure then it would be?

Is caffeine a drug? i have pure caffeine. I understand where you coming from, but really. mushrooms are just a fungus and they are definitely drugs. Oh, if you just happen to eat them some crazy **** happens.

I'm not gonna argue if it's harmful or not (which it isn't) - feel free to watch Super high me. that's not my point.

I have been smoking weed for years, always had high GPA's and top of my class, and I make sure I go to all my classes and exams blazed.

I assure you, people who say weed ruined their lives are just losers looking for something to blame their failure on.

me and my friend started smoking at the same time, he became a college drop out loser, I'm currently working on my master's in a medical major.

in short, if you are a loser or successful, it's about YOU , it's something fun to do like playing video games, many people blame video games for not studying enough or some **** .

and based on my knowledge and personal experience for smoking more than 6-7 years now, it will never affect your health in a bad way, I workout regularly, my body looks great, my sex life is amazing to say the least.

I'm not telling anyone they should smoke, but I swear I did all the research a guy with a high IQ can do, and I found absolutely nothing wrong with it.

P.S. I'm back home for vacation, and haven't smoked in over a month, and there is absolutely no difference, it's not a drug so you have to "quit', it's like saying you quit playing video games or browsing FJ.

please no one reply to this, I'm not looking to argue with anyone about it at all, I just had to say what I wanted to say, if you smoke or not, it's fine either way, just a personal choice. but you say you can't have fun or live without weed, you are just lying to yourself.

I agree with you that weed isn't the safest thing in the world, but when compared to alcohol/tobacco/caffeine, it isn't as bad is what most people usually mean when they say it isn't bad for you. At the same time, it has helped me in my life because I don't do it to go party, I do it to relax and relieve stress with friends. The main reason I actually do it is because I am nauseous for at least an hour after I am awake so I can barely eat on top of barely being able to eat later in the day. It destroys all my nauseous feelings and makes me hungry. The drug dealer thing is true though. The only thing I gotta say is that not everyone does it is doing it just cause they hate life or party. I love doing it and I love my life because I have friends, a job, go to school, a car, and more. Just cause someone does it don't assume they hate their life or are "emo-fags". I don't need weed, I just enjoy it.

....really?....really?....you know, us people who smoke, we get that information that we use to "insist it does nothing bad to you" from scientists, the kinda people that would know that stuff? and no, by no means does it lower your lung capacity, i've been smoking almost daily for a year now, i can swim 3/4 of a lap across the longest stretch of our local pool (down and back half way) underwater....no one in my community can even touch that right now. also, it does have positive effects, eating food made with it will give you essential oils, fats, and amino acids present in the bud, not only that, (for me at least, because i have asthma) when you smoke, it only temporarily paralyzes your cilia (tiny, bristle like fibers in your lungs that help to remove mucus from them), which, for most means a slight cough for a while, for me it means my lungs actually function on the same level as someone without asthma, because my condition results from a lack of moisture and opening my airways, both problems are solved by smoking...and i only smoke to enjoy life a little more, it helps me relax, enjoy my music that i listen to, enjoy video games more, it helps me sleep better because i wake up less during the night (which is also beneficial, waking up during rem sleep or sleep in general can weaken your heart), and by no means does it lower my reaction time, it actually makes me more wary in that aspect, it makes me expect enemies in my video games around corners a little more, it helps me react to the point that when they startle me and i even attempt to pop off a shot on them, i get a headshot (CS:S). so tell me again how weed is terrible?
#13 to #9 - anon (07/18/2013) [-]
I'd rather believe a real scientist rather than some scientist who of course is going to try to push his pro drug agenda. They aren't reliable. Your lung needs oxygen, smoke is the opposite. You can enjoy life just fine without needing to smoke.
#22 to #13 - sanepane (07/18/2013) [-]
Pro drug agenda? Why would a scientist advocate the use of an illegal drug? And even if some scientist(s) would like to study beneficial effects of cannabis, where would they get the funding? The legal cannabis business is at best in its infancy, hell, in most places it simply doesn't exist and organized crime has no motive to push forward legalization, as legalization means taxes and increased competition.

Most data on cannabis, be it negative or positive, comes either from independent studies or studies funded by parties with a vested interest in KEEPING IT ILLEGAL.
Take for instance UCLA Researcher Donald Tashkin's study on marijuana and lung cancer, the largest one of its kind. The study was financed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a goverment institute whose mission is to "lead the Nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug abuse and addiction." Their job is to eliminate drug use. The government that funds NIDA also spends countless millions of dollars fighting a drug war and incarcerating hundreds of thousands of people based on this war, often on minor offences. They (Tashkin&UCLA) were tasked to find a connection between cannabis and lung cancer. They did not. There was no pro-cannabis agenda there.
#46 to #22 - anon (07/18/2013) [-]
Because they're a bias idiot that's why. The legal cannabis business should not have even existed, sticking with your infant example, it should have been aborted long ago. They should be fighting to keep it illegal. They're in the right. It's a terrible drug and should never be legalized. I'm glad organizations like that exist.

Correction: NIDA's job is to find data that will aid in eliminating drug use. Quote (on their mission): "This charge has two critical components. The first is the strategic support and conduct of research across a broad range of disciplines. The second is ensuring the rapid and effective dissemination and use of the results of that research to significantly improve prevention, treatment and policy as it relates to drug abuse and addiction."

#47 to #24 - anon (07/18/2013) [-]
And I see nothing wrong with that. They are saving lives and doing good things. I support them fully for fighting against drug addicts.
User avatar #15 to #13 - gobnick (07/18/2013) [-]
i understand these things, but in general, smoking weed has little to no harmful effect, but it's illegal, and in cases like mine it's in fact, beneficial. it's not just that it makes things awesome to me, that's a bonus, but that it allows me to function and exercise like a normal person, rather than having to go hit an inhaler for chemicals that barely ever work to keep me from blacking out....that's when i consider it something that should be allowed and in fact, promoted. it's earned its place, alcohol and tobacco on the other hand, are far worse, and have almost no beneficial effects
#49 to #15 - anon (07/18/2013) [-]
There still is harmful effects though. It's just not worth it. Avoid as many harmful things as reasonably possible. I feel the same way about alcohol and tobacco that I do about weed. All are horrible.

Get a stronger presciption, idfk. Talk to your doctor. Do not do drugs.
User avatar #85 to #49 - gobnick (07/19/2013) [-]
....yeaaahh, thanks for the (most likely feigned) concern, but i'm gonna stick with what by all means does not in fact, harm me in any way, and that, in fact, performs better than any chemical or prescription i've come across so far. by coupling it with working out i've lost almost all my fat and have gained plenty of muscle, and have in doing so promoted a more focused attitude toward working out, working, and going outside more, i do still play video games, but on a maybe one-day-a-week basis.

There are no deaths reported in direct correlation to marijuana. Your argument is both non-sensical and highly illogical.
Please research the topic you are so blindly trying to argue.
#50 to #27 - anon (07/18/2013) [-]
But it leads to deaths and that's just as bad. Some guy talks his brother into killing someone. The guy doesn't directly kill anyone but he is still at fault. Same thing with weed. It causes pain and suffering and sometimes death.
#88 to #50 - JanesManniquin (07/19/2013) [-]
Da fuq kinda weed are you smoking? Normally its just giggly and well- hungry....
